I met Gabe Carter (Mississippi Gabe) from our roots music Office Sessions. This was a unique time in my life and with the local (Chicago) roots music scene. Gabe's voice, tone, play, and deep down connection with God, all harmonize in to his Mississippi Bentoia distinctive style of blues. Gabe soulful music storytelling puts you in the moment as it was meant for.
Jeff Stone accompanied Mississippi Gabe, playing on his harp(s). Talk about blues revival, Jeff was amazing! (This was the first time seeing Jeff.) He stepped in, body and soul, giving us a night to remember.
Of course this evening would not have been possible without the upcoming Chicago Cigar Box Guitar Festival this weekend, held at the Friendly Tap in Berwyn. Here is the link. I really enjoyed the family and welcoming atmosphere. Thank you, Brian!
